i think just another momentum occasion for our good friend jose (clapping) and i know this is the third time i believe that the city is - is it the fourth. fourth swearing in that's right and the reason why lieutenant governor knows that because he appointed jose in 2004 so thank you. visionary. of course, besides lieutenant governor i want to thank members of our family board of supervisors our da and assessor record and department heads and chiefs all the other departments our controller and others are
here and really a sincere appreciation for the work that jose has demonstrated. i want to say he's been such a great partner and i've had the privilege of working with him as a colleague but when i had the special chance of being the mayor here and wonder how to brag about san francisco i want to talk about more than the warriors something beyond supportship. look at what jose doing. so when we starting bragging about our chirnd program boy did you get a lot of attention from the other mafrz in the city. we brought him to a time when
there was signature interest generated from the hard work jose has put together. i know we were appointing someone who was going to go beyond the collection do side of that office. in those years as gavin will recall this city and a country faced itself down in horrible financial times and coming out of those years we asked ourselves what can we do better for the residents and the diverse community in the arena of financial planning and a allotcy and a sense from day one. and so the very creative idea came out and certainly i want to thank lieutenant mayor gavin newsom we're noting now
nationally renowned for our san francisco program our kindergarten to college program. i get to brag about that constantly and not 57 the burden of how that works and smart money and network and curtains in san francisco joining and leading cities on financial empowerment all over this country. those are some of the programs jose has put together gone beyond what we perceive he's helping us to educate the public and a businesses l about financial responsibility. it's sounds boring to everyone outside the room it's financial stuff but i'll tell you if the cities don't do this and cities
dodo this they'll be in trouble trouble. jose thank you and now you're going to work closely with me and many in the city and a entertain our businesses as and transform from a payroll tax to another tax system and low encourage job creation. he will be asked to step out of the traditional you've got to get it done and how do we help you do get under and city maintain and create jobs in the city. i'm here to say thank you jose to really let everybody you know how appreciative i've been 0 o and lucky to have you as a leader in our financial literacy captain. ooip i've been lucky to inherit

work and thank you for covering the base is. i ran over to college and wondered what happened to terminate limits that's been 10 damn years you're not over this yet, huh? . i was thinking what was the world would it be like. but it is remarkable to go back in time as the mayor was reflecting on some of the great work. i was thinking jose the other day when jaevent got sworn in how much time we spent that jeanette and she was celebrating at the time the only local no objection create that was initiated by jose and his team
and the great work that was being done that was ahead of of its time. resay respectfully they have a role to play but we could counter balance some of the work they remember doing with regards to those businesses. the mayor is not exaggerating i was at a meeting and bank of d.c. all coming out of the work from jose. success leaves clues and this is a successful city that leaves an remarkable amount of clues. we don't intimate because we're a model and mayor you should be proud of the leadership and
everyone here. it's an honor to be welcomed back to the extent i was weekday waiting for the opportunity to swear jose in i haven't done this in a long time. but payroll a carmen forgot about me i didn't know she was sworn in i'm okay about this this is only on tv this is okay we'll talk later. so jose he lets get you sworn back in for four more years. everybody ready. anybody have any reservation >> all right. i'll say i you state your name. >> do solemnly prestige to

>> herb theatre,open rehearsal. listen to the rehearsal. i think it is fun for them, they see our work process, our discussions, the decisions we make. it is good for us. we kind of behavior little bit when we have people in the audience. msk (music) >> we are rehearsing for our most expensive tour; plus two concerts here. we are proud that the growth of the orchestra, and how it is expanded and it is being accepted. my ambition when i came on as music director here --
it was evident we needed absolutely excellent work. also evident to me that i thought everyone should know that. this was my purpose. and after we opened, which was a spectacular opening concert about five weeks after that the economy completely crashed. my plan -- and i'm absolutely dogmatic about my plans --were delayed slightly. i would say that in this very difficult timefor the arts and everyone, especially the arts, it's phenomenal how new century has grown where many unfortunate organizations have stopped. during this period we got ourselves on national radio
presence; we started touring, releasing cds, a dvd. we continue to tour. reputation grows and grows and grows and it has never stopped going forward. msk(music) >> the bay area knows the orchestra. you maybe take things for granted a little bit. that is simply not the case will go on the road. the audiences go crazy. they don't see vitality like this on stage. we are capable of conveying joy when we play. msk(music) >> any performance that we do, that a program, that will be something on the program that you haven't heard before. string orchestra repertoire is pretty small.
i used to be boxed into small repertoire. i kept constantly looking for new repertoire and commissioning new arrangements. if you look at the first of the program you have very early, young vibrant mendelson; fabulous opener and then you have this fabulous concerto written for us in the orchestra. is our gift. msk(music) >> and then you have strauss, extraordinary piece. the most challenging of all. string orchestra work. 23 solo instrument, no violin section, now viola section;
